pomko (136) - UKRAINE - APR 10, 2014
Amber with a small white head. Malty aroma with some dark sugar and a hint of cinnamon. Sweet malty flavour with sugar and molasses.

bobroman (268) - Torun, POLAND - APR 5, 2014
Weak malty aroma, with unpleasant alcohol. Small head disappearing to thin layer. Clear dark copper body. Awful alcohol bitterness covers almost completely anything else.

PawelD (54) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. Bardzo słaby aromat toffi i alkoholu(tak jakby wąchać szklankę ciepłej wódki). Barwa miedzna, klarowna z dużą pianą która szybko znika do zera. W smaku lekka karmelowość i ohydny alkoholowy posmak, piwo przegazowane do bólu. Typowy koncerniakowy syf bez ładu i składu byle mocno nagazować i zmrozić do zera żeby przez gardło przeszło, żal.

Gary (1288) - (originally London), ROCHESTER, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
500ml can : I had 3 cans of this drank from a 2 pint Oktoberfest mug and swilled this industrial shit while watching football : basically a soulless dark lager ,soy sauce and caramel texture! Ok if you don’t wanna think about what you’re drinking .

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle, 6.5%. Lagery aroma, dark malts. Clear brown colour. Good stable off-white head. The flavour is caramelly with some alcohol, roasted malt finish, a little salt. More sugary than malty, actually, but not too shabby.

Bamsen78 (2409) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear darkish amber with airy but stable, light beige head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, and yeast, with hints of hops and butter. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with bitter, hoppy notes, and touches of roasted nuts and butter. Sweetish aftertaste. Watery. Looks like something must have gone wrong but I find it hard to say what. I first saw this beer in New York half a year ago and thought it was export only. It should have been, perhaps.

peponi (145) - POLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Aroma: almost nothing except alcohol. Appearance: nice amber color, poor head. Taste: a little bland -- medium alcohol bitterness, some bread and caramel notes, nothing happens. Palate: medium body, low carobnation, pharmaceutical aftertaste. Overall: What should I say ? One dimensional and empty bock -- for me it is not enough to buy this beer one more time.

Jan 2013. Average bock. Clear amber colour. Malty aromas, bread crust and caramel. Full bodied with a long finish.

imdownthepub (9622) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2014
Can, 500ml from Grozik Euro Supermarket, Banbury. Copper with short off white head. Tinny, wet cardboard flavour initially, pretty sweet with a sweet corn, maize like character. Fullish palate, some alcohol. It’s drinkable.

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. I’m actually shocked that this is my first Polish rate. God knows I’ve imbibed my share of corner shop Polish lagers over the years. Brown pour, small head. The nose is day old coffee, hints of toffes sweets. Mild toffee and cherry dessert flavors. Rich grainy body.. Substantial on the palate, but smooth. Not too bad, really.
